Chris Hindal, director of Regular Baptist International, hosted an international luncheon on Wednesday, June 29 at the GARBC Conference in Oswego, Illinois. After presenting a video overview of the ministries that Regular Baptist International has taken part in this past year, he encouraged everyone to contribute toward a project that would finish construction of a roof for a church plant in Galai, Liberia. Luncheon attendees donated $1,300, with additional people promising to send checks after the conference.
More internationals attended the conference this year than ever before. The 120 luncheon guests included five from Liberia, 10 from India, and one from Ghana. Eight associations presented five-minute reports of their ministries during the luncheon. At the close, Gary McConaghey introduced a new ministry initiative that will support church planters in developing countries.
